# Mega Millions Results, Numbers for 11/17/20: Did Anyone Win the \$176 Million?

The winning numbers in last night's Mega Millions drawing were 8, 13, 35, 46, and 68, and the Mega Ball was 16, while the Megaplier was 3X. Tlott, but did anyone win?

Nobody matched all numbers and the Mega Ball so nobody won the grand prize. Therefore, the next estimated jackpot is an estimated \$188 million with a cash option of \$145 million.

However, one player who purchased their ticket in Virginia matched all five numbers and won \$1 million. Additionally, 12 players matched four numbers and the Mega Ball and won \$10,000 each.

More than 300 players won \$500 by matching four numbers, while 55 of these winners multiplied their prizes to \$1,500 using the Megaplier. Nearly 800 players won \$200 by matching three numbers and the Mega Ball, while 150 of these players won \$600 using the Megaplier.

Around 34,000 players won \$10 by matching either three numbers or two numbers and the Mega Ball and more than 6,000 won \$30 using the Megaplier.

Finally, 415,000 players won \$4 or \$2 by matching either one number and the Mega Ball or just the Mega Ball, while more than 76,000 multiplied their prizes to \$12 or \$6 using the Megaplier.

## How to play the Mega Millions?

In the Mega Millions draw, five white balls are drawn from a set numbered 1 through 70 and one gold Mega Ball is drawn from a set numbered 1 through 25. Players win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date.

There are nine ways to win a prize ranging, from \$2 to the jackpot, and if no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing.

Yesterday the Mega Millions lottery announced that a Wisconsin man claimed his \$120 million— or \$95.4 million cash—prize on November 10. Adrian Tongson from Racine won the lottery jackpot on September 15 after purchasing a ticket at Mount Pleasant Kwik Trip's #134, but didn't realize until he checked his ticket weeks later.

Tongson chose the cash option and took home around \$65.2 million after federal and state taxes. He quit his job and is making plans for his winnings, and said: "Regardless of how much you spend, it only takes one ticket to win. That's what won it for me."

Additionally, Tongson's win is Wisconsin's first Mega Millions jackpot since Wisconsin debuted the game on January 31, 2010.

However, the state has produced big winners, with 64 Wisconsin players winning \$1 million since 2010. Wisconsin Lottery Director Cindy Polzin said in a statement: "I'm simply thrilled for Adrian! As a loyal Lottery player, he certainly is a perfect first Mega Millions jackpot winner for our state. Congratulations go to our retail partner Kwik Trip for selling the lucky ticket!"
